Fill in the blank with what ever you want.
I doubt the intent was there, at least I hope not...But FWIW, the three people I admire the most out of all my friends and family concerning handling their finances were not educated a day past high school.
Good finances isn't about general education level. It is about desire, discipline, and the monetary means to implement it.
Outside of a direct means to a job, education in and of itself doesn't really mean much on its own, to me anyways. A person can take a million personal finance courses and it will not do squat unless they want to do the dirty work required and implement it. People start smoking all the time and I doubt many started the habit because they were tricked into thinking it was as good for them as eating an apple. Im sure they received the "education" they are bad for you.
